I've joined Goregrind/death metal band and I've never listend really to goregrind and haven't got any experience on this kind of music.
Any recommends for me? (Yes I'm bassist)

I think I will play a little bit alex webster style (as good as I can).

EDIT:Influences are Cannibal corpse, torture killer and many goregrind bands.

I play in a solo deathgrind project called colorectal cancer (Bass, vocals, drums - you can find it on myspace). My basic advice is:
1. If you choose to use overdrive, play with as much gain as possible. If you want your bass without overdrive, i'd still go with a slightly distorted sound (Like, when the input is clipping, check out neoanderthalls to see what I mean).
2. Don't play everything EXACTLY as the guitarist, ie. if they are playing 4/4 of 1/8th palm muted notes, do some harmonics in between.

Thanks for hints . I've thinked myself to use deep tone without distrotion. But don't know yet, I'm kinda exited. Also I got something in my mind with harmonizing the sound (using tritone makes it kinda brutal).

Edit: Funny stuff you have made

Listen to Gorerotted - Only Tools and Corpses; Mutilated in Minutes, and Cryptopsy - Blasphemy Made Flesh; None so Vile if you want something to aim for considering bass tone and goregrind.

As for anything else, i've got no idea.

I call my stuff lolgrind for a reason I'm mainly focusing on the comedy aspect of grindcore


And about your tone, try getting a mid heavy tone, loose the trebble and use a little bit of bass and use a pick; OR get a trebble and low heavy sound using fingers, plus over-do the input gain to get some crunch. These are some really great tones for this kind of music. I can tell you, you wouldn't believe how many sounds I went through to get to where I'm at now.

Thanks for information . I'm playing mainly on melodic death metal band, and the tune I use in it changes alot. Sometimes distrotion, sometimes low as hell, so I kinda know the feeling.

Yea. I mainly play oldschool death metal, like morbid angel, carcass (see my signature for my band), but I also play folk metal , classical, funk, grindcore, rock - all with different sounds in mind.

Cattle Decapitation (classified as Deathgrind, but generally the same)
Torso****
Rotten Sound
Anal ****
Cephalic Carnage


Great bands right there, they should help you out a bit. Though most are Grindcore, they should be good
CANNIBAL CORPSE

When the silence is gone, what have we become?

Exhumed.

My Rig:

I fully agree on ye olde carcass. Even tho I like swansong and heartwork, Symphonies Of Sickness is a masterpiece, my band, morbid butchery, covers their "Reek Of Putrefaction" - one of the best songs
